High explosive blast radius
Multiple units may be affected by exploding grenades, shells, or bombs. The bigger the shell, the bigger the blast radius. All infantry units and softskin vehicles in the blast radius – no matter if friend or enemy – have to roll 4D6 to determine if hit. All infantry units and softskin vehicles in the blast radius have to pass a morale check.
The attacker rolls 4D6 for every possibly hit unit in the blast radius. Like in other attack rolls the rolled number has to match or be below the attack value after adding bonuses and subtracting penalties. Suppose the enemy is hit, then the hit’s effect has to be determined.
Table blast radius
|Caliber of the HE shell||Blast radius|
|Handgrenades / 20mm (flamethrowers likely treated)||5cm / 2in|
|37 to 47mm (satchel charges, geballte Ladung and mortar shells likely treated)||10cm / 4in|
|75 to 88mm (exploding vehicles likely treated)||20cm / 8in|
|Calibers above (bombs likely treated)||25 cm / 10 in|
Detailed informations calibers units use and their blast radiuses are part of the unit descriptions that come with the unit cards.
